But President TrumpDonald John TrumpCNN analyst Kirsten Powers: Melania's jacket should read "Let them eat cake" CNN's Cuomo confronts Lewandowski over "womp womp" remark Sessions says Federal Bureau of Investigation agent Peter Strzok no longer has his security clearance MORE contradicted that statement, saying in a tweet that the message referred to "the Fake News Media".
Since her husband took office, Melania Trump's wardrobe has served as her mood ring. "Do U?" on the back as she returns to Washington from a visit to the U.S. -Mexico border area in Texas at Joint Base Andrews, Maryland, US.
Colbert played a video clip of Trump asking a staff member at a border facility about the maximum length of time a child might stay in the centre before reuniting with family members. After initially defending the situation and then blaming it on his predecessor, he later said he will move to end the policy.
"I always wear what I like and what is appropriate for the occasion", Melania Trump told ELLE in 2016. When asked what message the first lady's jacket meant to send, spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham said: "It's a jacket".
When she arrived in Texas the first lady was no longer wearing the $39 (€34) jacket from Zara. There was no hidden message. For her first state dinner, she opted not to hire an outside party planner, as is the norm, and chose everything, including the flowers and the table linens, herself, with the help of Rickie Niceta, her social secretary. "She wanted to see everything for herself and children are an important part of her platform", Grisham told the pool. "Melania has learned how dishonest they are, and she truly no longer cares!" he added on Twitter. There are no hidden messages in fashion.
"Hey Melania. WE REALLY DO CARE!"
All of which makes the green jacket more infuriating.
And on Sunday, her spokesman said she hoped the crisis would be solved 'with heart, ' sparking widespread speculation that the First Lady disagreed with her husband's own policy.
This isn't the first time Trump has caused waves with her choice of outfit.
The first lady's spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, responded to the jacket story. As the first lady knows, fashion is not frivolous, It's not just a jacket, it's a disturbing, cold question posed to the world at the wrong time, and at the wrong place. "That's the nature of these positions - you give your best advice and best guidance and, ultimately, they are going to make the decisions for themselves", she said.
